What is Natural Fertility Optimization?

If you’re thinking about trying to conceive, it’s time for you and your partner to get serious about your fertility and reproductive health. Take control of your reproductive outcomes the natural way with fertility optimization.

At New York Fertility Institute, our compassionate and experienced care team, led by Majid Fateh, MD and Khalid Sultan, MD, provides support to male and female patients in the Upper East Side of New York City who are trying to conceive. With natural fertility optimization, you can improve your chances for natural conception, and prepare your body to support a healthy pregnancy.

Chances and risks

There’s no one answer to the question of how easy or difficult it will be for each couple to conceive. Factors in both partners can impact your potential fertility. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the two biggest factors are your age and the amount of time you’ve been trying. 

Getting ready for conception

Before you start trying to get pregnant, it’s important for women to make sure their bodies are ready. Make healthier lifestyle choices, including:

You should start taking prenatal vitamin supplements if you think it’s likely you’ll conceive soon, as the benefits should be in place before a pregnancy for the best results.

Any known medical or genetic conditions, and factors, like higher maternal age, can increase your risks. If you anticipate having a high-risk pregnancy, get your doctor involved right away. We can advise you on anything you might specifically need to know before conceiving.

Monitoring your baselines

Once you’re ready to conceive, learning your cycle will allow you to target your fertile window, the time of the month when a pregnancy could occur. Having sex every day or two during your fertile window gives you the best chances for conception.

With natural fertility optimization, you increase your chances of successful conception without the use of any medications. Using a urinary ovulation predictor kit allows you to identify your fertile window. Tracking physical indicators, including your cervical mucus, vaginal secretions, and luteinizing hormone levels, gives you the information you need to naturally optimize your approach to your fertility.

About one in seven couples struggle to conceive within the first year of trying. If you’re concerned about your fertility or are looking for natural support while you try to conceive, get in touch with the New York Fertility Institute now.
